About Episode

We all know outsourcing works. However, we also know that sometimes, finding the perfect employee for a specific need for your business is easier said than done. There are tons of places to find freelancers, but this can lead to a kind of trial-and-error process. You may have to waste time, and even money, to find the people you’re looking for.

Staffing and recruiting agencies are out there to help streamline the process. For many entrepreneurs, this is the solution they’ve been looking for. In 2019 alone, U.S. sales for the staffing and recruiting sector hit 161-billion dollars. Again, if you’re having outsourcing woes, a staffing agency/recruiting center can help.

Yet for some business owners, the struggle to find a truly unique staffing solution is still real. Is there a human element missing to this industry? Do you think that’s what you’ve been missing in your own recruitment goals! Our guest today might be able to help!

Ask Ignite: Should I Really Worry About What My Competitors Are Doing?

There is a marked difference between paying attention to your competitors, especially when it comes to how they market themselves, and focusing more on what they are doing, than what your customers might want/enjoy. Competitor obsession can distract you from more important things. Paying attention to businesses similar to yours can be good for inspiration, but it’s still important to ultimately focus on giving your customers the best experience possible.

It can be particularly damaging to focus on specific competitors. Paying attention to patterns in marketing and brand success can be wise. Taking things to the point where you’re essentially cloning what someone else is doing can be extremely problematic.

At the end of the day, getting feedback from clients is always a better idea for making changes, if those changes are necessary. And while identifying certain patterns can steer your own design and branding goals in the right direction, you still want to ultimately establish your own unique identity.
